Kem Cetinay and Dom Lever have taken the Love Island 2017 virginity with their partners Amber Davies and Jessica Shears, while Camilla Thurlow and Jonny Mitchell suffer a rough patch in their relationship.

However, around all the drama, relationships and rows there is one goal – to win Love Island.

Whoever wins the show is awarded with £50,000 which they can either steal for themselves or share with their partner.

But one thing viewers are dying to know is if the contestants are initially paid to go on the show.

The answer may surprise you, but it’s nothing.

The likes of Olivia Attwood, Montana Brown and Marcel Somerville do not get paid to appear on the hit reality TV show.

However, they are given the chance to compete for that big £50,000.

As well as this, due to the show’s popularity, the stars normally go on to continue their fame in other industries.

For example, Olivia Buckland from series two has gone on to release her own clothing and swimwear lines as Kady McDermott specialises in her ByKady makeup range.

A lot of the stars can also earn money after the show from PAs in clubs around the country and through magazine cover deals.
